The Governor has called on Marylanders to pray and reflect this Sunday, April 5 at noon in response to COVID-19. Please get the word out to your congregations and friends to be praying and if feasible tune in to your online services for a collective virtual time of prayer.
Paraphrasing the Governor’s remarks, this Sunday is Palm Sunday, Wednesday Passover begins for the Jewish Faith, and next Sunday is Easter for the Christian faith. Easter is a time of reflecting on the sacrifice of one for the redemption of many. Many of us too have been asked to make sacrifices to save the lives of others. The Governor is now calling on all Marylanders regardless of faith to have a moment of prayer or reflection Sunday at noon to remember those we have lost and those who are sick.
“Join together at home or wherever, wherever you are, at a moment of prayer, or reflection,” Hogan said. “For those who have lost. Those who are sick, and the doctors, nurses, clinicians healthcare workers and first responders on the front lines around the clock, working to bring about a new dawn, in our history together.”
- Comfort – for those grieving the loss of loved ones and those presently sick.
- Strength and protection – for health care workers, first responders, and those on the frontlines working around the clock.
- Pray for eachother, Maryland, the USA, and people suffering around the world.
